All week we are having awesome giveaways to get you ready for summer!  While most of the prizes so far have been in line with vacation and relaxing, I thought today we would go with a crucial small appliance for helping you save money in the summer!

The number one way to save on produce is to buy it in season and stock up!  Summer is when most items are in season, so this is the perfect time to get a vacuum sealer and go crazy putting up fresh vegetables and fruit (and meat).  My general rule of thumb is that items can only be stored in ziploc bags for up to 6 weeks, so if you plan to store items longer it’s time to switch!

Today we’re giving away a FoodSaver Vacuum Sealer.  These retail around $130-$150 but honestly are well worth it to not lose food to freezer burn.

Want to get started putting up veggies?  Here’s a quick handy guide and printable to help you prep your food.
